    The race is just around the corner. Who's going to podium? Who will be the biggest bust or surprise of 2018?
    Where is Malcom on the entry list? Cant believe this guy does not put a privateer effort together to race? Just tells me that the reason because he wanted too much money last year, is that he has no drive to be there.

    Tyler Bowers is listed on the 450 entry list. Tedder, long time Team Green / Monster family is listed on a KTM. That is a change for the Tedder family.

    Hanson has a Suzuki ride with something like Nut Up Racing. I am sure they will sell Beanies for Knox to buy one that says "Nut Up".

    The 250 class is going to be stacked and should be fun to watch.

    Saw some videos, looks like all the teams are practicing starts on the wire start grates.

    Here are some incomplete Pre-Entry for A1.

    I’m curious to see how Hill does. Guess we’ll see if he can do something with that Suzuki. I think AP comes out ripping this year, he needs to get on a big bike though. 450 wise I don’t know what to expect, and I’m glad I have no idea what to expect. Going to make for some good racing. That being said I think ET3 holeshots and checks out.

    All the industry talk points to KR94 and AC92 both former Baker products now working together. Only time will tell, but I won’t bet against them.

    If he has a hurt wrist, why would they not hold him out of the West, and have him ride the East to give him a few more weeks to heal?

    Hoping for a good/healthy season for Drano!

    Obviously GO AP!

    I really hope the Entiknaps bros make some more mains this year. I like both of them and talked to Adam at Indy last year he seemed pretty cool.

    Where is Bag It on the entry list? Is he hurt or no ride?
    No numbers 1,4,5,6,7,8,9. I am over this dumbass career number crap. I mean even arenacross put the top 10 in the numbers for the next year. Earning a national number means something.

    I was almost certain Forkner was going to ride East coast to have more time to prepare because of his injury, guess not. Would have to put Hill and AP as front runners for sure. However, you can’t count out Savatgy, AC, A-Mart or Craig. 250’s will be interesting.

    As for 450’s, I’d put Musquin on the top step with ET3 and KR94 battling behind him.

    Mookie has posted several videos on Instagram of him riding at the Stewart compound on a Kawi running his 2018 number (#27). I would imagine he lines up at A1, if not then maybe he’s just going to race select rounds.

    I’m curious to see how Justin cooper does too for star Yamaha. Read some cool articles on him recently he was really scrapping it trying to make it happen and he had a hell of a year. Seems like Kawi gets them as young as possible and Yamaha picks up the kids really trying like hell to make it. Kawi probably signed villopotos kids in the womb just in case.

    Lol. In the womb! Probably. But villo did have a factory Yamaha support ride on 85s before kawi scooped him. So maybe Yamaha and Kawi are negotiating for womb real estate.

    So is JS7 racing ? His headshot always appears. And his name has been on entry lists. But, he never shows.

    I just watched the press conference. Man is that boring. I like to see the riders and hear them talk but come on, get a little excited. They all seemed like they didn't want to be there. Get some hype going, say your expecting to win some kind of smack talk. Watch fight weigh ins when they get all pumped up and want to kick some bodies butt. Get Hannah or RJ in there to get the heat up.
